VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mydecine Innovations Group Inc. ("Mydecine" or the "Company") (NEO:MYCO) (OTC:MYCOF) (FSE:0NFA), a biotechnology company engineering the next wave of innovative medications and treatment protocols to directly address mental health with a particular emphasis on addiction and PTSD, has announced that it has improved its financial position, significantly reduced cash burn, increased efficiencies and expanded its intellectual property portfolio. The Company’s management team is focused on the Company's fundamentals, while continuing to expand its intellectual property (IP) portfolio with novel molecules for mental health and addiction treatment.
The Company has successfully modified its business model to collaborate with Contract Research Organizations (CROs), in-license its molecules, fund the development of new drugs, and accelerate the various stages of clinical trials. Mydecine continues to focus on the success of the Company and creating value for its shareholders.
Novel molecules that have shown great promise in preclinical studies for the potential treatment of mental health and addiction, are included in its newly expanded intellectual property portfolio. These new molecules, according to the Company, have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of a variety of conditions, providing more effective and efficient solutions that will ultimately improve the quality of life for patients worldwide.
"We've spent a significant amount of time refining our core focus to be sustainable, elegant, and efficient while still retaining the blue sky that we believe the various drugs we're developing hold. The context and the goal for Mydecine is to build on data we are seeing from the first generation of psychedelic medicine and to improve the molecules to fit into existing medical infrastructure; we’ve made significant progress towards that goal. Capital market risks have been felt strongly across the industry, forcing companies to pivot or die, as we've recently seen. Throughout this time, the Mydecine team has been collectively dedicated, with the vast majority of management deferring cash compensation while continuing to put in 100% effort and focus. We have concentrated on expanding our novel drug development and intellectual property portfolios, as well as finding innovative ways to partner, fund, and advance the development of our drug families, while not bearing the total cost associated with it. We look forward to updating the market on our results and evolving partnerships that have occurred in recent months and are ongoing," said Josh Bartch, Mydecine Chairman and CEO.
With its innovative IP portfolio, groundbreaking research, and unwavering commitment to improving patients' lives, Mydecine is poised to become a significant partner in the biopharmaceutical industry.
The Company also announces that Todd Heinzl has resigned from the Company’s Board of Directors to pursue other endeavors. The Board wishes to thank Mr. Heinzl for his service to the Company during his tenure as an independent Director and audit committee member. In his place, Mydecine announces that Neil Stevenson-Moore has been appointed as an independent Director to the Board and audit committee member effective today.

He has an impressive track record of driving growth, success and innovation and has worked in both corporate and entrepreneurial environments.

Mr. Stevenson-Moore is an excellent problem solver and negotiator, able to bridge the gap between stakeholder priorities.
